Anyone else had a look? They make fascinating reading, I could be there all day if I'm not careful. For example, our local comp (vying for contention as worst in B'ham) spends a staggering £10,600 per pupil
! That's twice the B'ham average and roughly the same as local indie fees (but the indie would expect high attainers to take more than 6 GCSEs each
I am not yet good at deciphering all these kinds of tables, as I know that many factors have an effect on all this ranking (for example such school opted for an iGCSE instead of a GCSE, etc)
But I have been surprised to find that if we consider the English Bacc just in Birmingham, we can see that in the top 200, KEVIHS (independent) comes top with 93% (well done to them!) then KES and Handswordth girls grammar with 91%, CHB just behind with 90%, CH girls with 87%, QM with 84%, Edgbaston High for girls 76%, AGS (Telford) with 74%...
Where is Five ways? How come it is not listed there? And Aston? And the Sutton Coldfiled grammars?
I am perplexed
Please, could you shed some light on how to understand these figures?
